As stated by the others, the Petrucci models are right at home with shred, but are versatile beyond just high-speed soloing.
The neck is a slight bit beefier than the ex-Ibanez Petrucci models, but comfy, as is the body - the regular JP model has a goofy-looking arm scallop, which is however a great arm rest when playing extensive sessions.
The BFR models have a different body and are a class of their own, also price-wise...they however come with a gloss finished neck, which kills them for me. The new DiMarzio pickups in these babies smoke in any case and complement the guitar well. If you get a change to play one, don't - or you might not want to back to anything else
Funnily, I am currently negotiating to get myself an EBMM Axis (non-BFR, can't stand the 12th fret inlay and don't like the BFR colors too much, lol), however. I have 3 pencil necks in the house and want something with a bit more neck wood for a change. The Axis neck is way thicker than any Wizard profile or the Petrucci for that matter, yet well-balanced and not as wide. The gunstock oil finish gives it a playing comfort that is on par to a J Custom Wizard finish for me (actually, that depends on my mood on that given day).
But in the end...you can read as much as you want about all this. Go out there and play them, only you can tell if you like them.
